  • Intravenous Pyelogram is an xray of the urinary tract n action. He will be given a contract via IV in his arm, then x-rays will be performed. Some ppl experience flushing, warmth, metallic taste but the Sx shouldn't last long..a few mins.

  • Sorry I didn't mean "contract"...Suppose to be contrast. Not sure why the cam, most are done with xray, I guess it is bc of his Sx and Hx. The cam should be really tiny, the size of a cath (tube used to drain the bladder). Hope all goes well.
